Seo Ye-ji’s Upcoming K-Drama May Have Found Its Leading Man

Kim Nam-gil is in talks to star alongside the actress in ‘Island’

Who’s ready for a new K-drama starring Seo Ye-Ji? Island, the new OCN drama that possibly stars Seo Ye-Ji and is set to air in the second half of 2021, has exciting news: it may have found its leading man!


Kim Nam-gil is in talks to lead the fantasy drama, which, according to a report by Soompi, will find him “transforming into the sexy monster hunter Van who noticeably lacks the skills to adjust to reality.” 


Based on a webtoon, Island is a fantasy exorcism drama that will follow a man searching for a woman to end his cursed immortal life, and “a woman who doesn’t know anything about her sad and cruel fate.”

They will be joined by an exorcist priest, whose guilt is eating him up, after he fails to protect a girl. On an island where evil roams free, the three characters must join forces to protect one another. 


According to an earlier report by Soompi, Seo Ye-ji has been offered the role of Won Min-ho, the daughter of a rich family, who is being targeted by goblins.


All of this sounds exciting—and it’ll be even more thrilling if Seo Ye-Ji and Kim Nam-gil are confirmed in the roles!
